John came on channel and I was able to ask him to disconnect but before I could log out and reconnect myself - to re-establish channel authority - you logged in. A quick check showed that I still didn't have channel control - the editing and bouncing options were still greyed out - so that is why I asked you to log off Teamspeak. Only then was I able to close the channel down and restart it correctly. I don't know if connecting is harder for pilots but it is fairly automatic for controllers. Starting the controller software kicks TS into action and all you have to do is create the channel, add the callsign and bang in the weather. For pilots I would say that the only caution is that when you have finished your flying you have to make sure that you leave the ATC channel, or close TS down, otherwise that channel remains active. This locks it and prevents ATC from opening it again. bones I grabbed your frequency from the Eye, then manually tuned my COM radio to it. It didn't appear in the on screen list (perhaps due to your problem). Once tuned the IVAO system opened TS and put me into your channel. Frank T.
